I am a single guy in his late 20s who is looking for something more. What that something is can be as simple as a new friend or a more significant relationship.
I grew up in Northern California, went to college in Los Angeles, and I’ve been living in San Francisco for almost five years now, working in investment banking. Luckily my work does not require that I be at the office a hundred hours a week. I’ve been very fortunate to have a career that offers the proper balance of work and quality of life, which has enabled me to make a lot of amazing friends and sustain important relationships.
If I were to make a list of things I am passionate about, one of them would be living in this picturesque, unique city which can be disarming and make you feel welcome all at the same time. (A combination I’m guilty of finding attractive in women as well.)
Before moving here, I was a very picky eater and I’d have been more than willing to have all my arm hair waxed off with scotch tape if it meant getting me out of a run. Now, after living in a mecca of cuisine, I’ll eat just about anything, and a long run is akin to a hot bath and a good book to others. The first time I felt like I really belonged here was the first time I ran from my apartment to over the Golden Gate Bridge.
This city is still a bit of a mystery to me, and a favorite pastime of mine has become exploring the idiosyncrasies and attractions of a new neighborhood. It seems like all it takes is a long walk or short cab ride and something completely new and different from your own world is at your fingertips. I’ve done my fair share of traveling and lived all over Southern California, and one thing I think that sets San Francisco apart is that it encourages spontaneity…so I guess I’m looking for someone to be spontaneous with.
